    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Enefiok lived with my family 35 years ago for almost 2 years, he's now back living in his native country Nigeria. I'm am cycling from the UK to reaquaint with him. He has a wife and 3 young children and like a number of Africans is finding just to meet the daily needs of life is challenging enough. For some reason children in his country don't receive free education, costing £1000 for 3 kids for one year.
    I have journeyed around 10000 kms passing 12 countries and taking 1 year to arrive here in Benin the neighbouring country. Within a month we will enjoy a reunion!
    He was a fantastic athlete and so fast ! An adorable African child with a wonderful smile and good heart, people adored him! If I could make it I want to help a brother friend, so therefore I undertook this extraordinary adventure. During the whole journey I have made I've done so for free including the bike, equiptnent, boats, visas, mechanics, sleeping and all my daily needs. I'm making a sacrifice so I can present him my rent income to help him and his family. It's been fun and certainly the most demanding voyage I've ever undertaken!
    I would also like to be father Xmas and provide bikes for his family so they can explore and adventure as well as enjoying and sharing my knowledge with them. I have taught yoga to 5000 kids along the journey and shared Tai Chi, Capoeira and massaged over 300 people for free.
    I understand that some friends have already contributed to this cause and thankyou so much, however if you would like to share or indeed help please do they ( Enefiok 😀 & Family wife Komomma and their 3 kids... Nfonabasi ...Eddidiong... Iniobong... )will appriciate it greatly.
    Love light and blessings
    Happy Xmas!

      Been teaching yoga to 30plus children and getting some Xmas presents for them in last few days a remarkable fact that they have hardly ever recieved such gifts ... an education for a whole year without the concirn of whether they can facilitate this 'luxury' ? they're very bright young children just need a little help if you can !

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
